Hey Misto, do you have an account on the KS forums? Just curious.
And you know what we need? We need some pics up in here.
I do not. Been too lazy to sign up.
I just don't think I have enough love for all of that... mass.
speaking of Misha
Why do fellas like Hanako so much? Not as pretty as Lilly, or as feelings as Rin. Her route was kinda a drag, with only part 4 having much substance.
Maybe because of her shyness, which ups her MOE factor.
Maybe, but that's pretty lame.
I like Rin the best because I feel like the overarching theme of living in the present and not letting fear or uncertainty stand in your way that was present in her story is highly relevant to my own life. I'd rather be in a relationship with somebody like Lilly, but I learned more from Rin.
Speaking of Hanako, i started her route last night. Into act 3 right now and i'll say she's adorable. It's the shyness man, it sucks you right in. People just love her and Lilly. I can understand but my Rin is the only girl for me
Hanako's shyness is the reason I don't like her. By the end of her route, what do you know about her? A little bit of her past, she likes games, and she's a bit of a misanthrope. Her shyness isn't just her most important character trait: it's so all consuming that it becomes her only one. Granted the story doesn't dance around the subject, and addresses it head on, but it's hard to legitimately care about somebody you know so little about. It's kinda like the lack of understanding with Rin, but with Rin you get times where you'll get glimpse into her real feelings, like when she's high off her ass, or when you're both so miserable that words aren't even needed anymore.
I get what you're saying. But the general consensus is that shyness = moe and that makes a character endearing. It's the same as asking why Hinata from Naruto is so popular, or why the inexplicable occurs. It just is.
You can have a one-note shy character be cute, but it takes more than that to set a cuteness standard.
You need all cylinders firing.
Misha is fat...in all the right places.
The more I think about Hanako's route, the more I'm frustrated by it. You spend all this time trying to get her to open up, and finally you get to the point where she can, and then... it ends. It feels like the story is half over, and it just feels like a wasted opportunity. I think it would be interesting watching the two of them who share a close bond but at the same time are almost strangers get to know each other.
I agree. The initiation of the relationship is only part of the battle.
Honestly, Shizune's is gonna have to be pretty bad if it wants to nab the "Worst Route" title from Hanako.
I think most people would agree that Shizune's route was the worst. I enjoyed it so i can't comment.
Speaking of routes, I was thinking about stuff, and I had a thought I kinda liked. What if they did a sequel starring Kenji, based on the bad ending? After Hisao died alone and friendless, Kenji was like "Do I wanna do the same, or do I wanna fuck bitches?" I imagine he would mistake Rin for a boy through half the route and be like "Dude, do I like dudes?"
That would be awesome
We need some funny pictures up in here dammit.
I think Lily's was the worst. It was pretty dull.
Lilly's been a hell of a lot better than Hanako so far. Lilly damn near turned my gay friend.
I agree, Lilly's and Hanako's were the most boring.
FUNNY PICTURES YOU SAY?
I haven't seen that one before Misto
I have no idea what to say to that picture.
Welp I finished Emi's and only got Rin left. Emi was much better then I though, still Lily has been my favorite so far.
I just can't muster up the will power to play Rin's route.
Take your time.
Damn it, so far only 13% completed.
I wanna choose Hanako first though.
I'm still on act 1,13%.
I gotta say,i freaking enjoyed every single moment on this Visual Novel,its my first ever Visual Novel reading attempt.
I guess i should get a set for Shizune.
But i got a question,why the heck is Misha so energetic?That always bugged me.
I got Emi instead.
Ah well, better luck next time, at least she's cute.
A ton of people ended with Emi, despite wanting someone else (usually Lily or Hanako)
I was one of those people. And I was pleasantly surprised. Her route is one of the best.
Posting because Katawa-Shoujo is amazing.
Also that Rin boxing pic is about the lulziest thing ever.
WHO NEEDS FOREVER ALONE DAY
WHEN I HAVE KATAWA SHOUJOS
rin is my valentine
Screw that valentines shit, I'm gonna spend tonight with my bros, some whiskey & pretzels.
No she's mine
Aw who am i kidding, it's gonna be a manly picnic day
*spins* I love this VN.
I liked her route, because Hisao actually developed some love for Emi, which didn't happen with Hanako, everything went so quickly in Arc 4 and Hisao fell in love without any decent development IMO.
That's the main reason I've been left unsatisfied with the Hanako route, but it was worth it anyways, any smile of her made me go pek.
The scenes between Hanako and Lilly were so heart-wrenchingly cute, why couldn't they end up together someway? Would've been much better.
And why the fuck did I want to know the bad ending? Now I got this
burned in my head. Why are you so cruel, Hisao?
After accidentally getting Emi's bad end, I felt like shit for a couple of days. Never wanted to see another bad end again
I got that one first, too, I just had to tell Misha.
And I got Hanako's neutral ending first, I think I have to listen to people more, even though it was just game.
Hanako's bad end... holy motherfucking shit on a stick. Shizune & Rin's were pretty damn bad as well.
But to lighten things up:
Separate names with a comma.
